John Lamping has had difficulty focusing his career. He worked on network drivers before getting a PhD in computer science from Stanford University.
He was a principal scientist at Xerox PARC, where he worked in various fields, including Aspect Oriented Programming, visualization, optimal lambda calculus evaluation, and natural language semantics.
He was a senior staff engineer at Google, where he worked on the core ranking function, notably leading the project that automatically learns synonyms from search logs. It probably helped get the results for the last query you did on Google.
